Wednesday spoilers to follow
A Wednesday-centric story has always been an intriguing premise. More time with our favorite dark and twisted member of the Addams Family? Yes, please.
Wednesday definitely delivered, as promised, an indulgent dose of the weird and wonderful as it shattered the minds of arguably the most mysterious of Addams. It took viewers on a long, winding crime story as Wednesday tried to figure out who was maiming and killing the residents of Jericho. Of course, like Wednesday (Jenna Ortega), we were looking for clues.
The show dug up a few twists for its finale, leaving fans guessing as to who wrote this mysterious text, but we certainly need more than speculation to satisfy our curiosity. The most obvious solution is another season, but will there be? Here’s everything we know Wednesday season two.
Potential Wednesday season 2 release date: when is it back?
state of things Wednesday was only billed for one season, but all those loose strings suggest the creators have a future in mind that extends beyond a solo outing.
In an interview, series co-creator Alfred Gough addressed the possibility of expanding the franchise, stating:
“Miles (Millar, his co-creator) and I are talking about it. There is definitely more to discover in the world of Addams.”
While Gough’s opinion is fairly general and could lead to exploration of other Addams’ stories, it seems highly unlikely that the duo would leave Wednesday’s story unfinished.
The only thing that might be a stumbling block is the public’s reaction to the show. The Netflix deities only respond to clicks. So if you want to see more of Ortega on Wednesday, keep streaming.
Season Two Cast Wednesday: Who’s Coming Back?
It’s inscrutable that Wednesday and her right-hand man Thing aren’t returning for a second season, so we’re hoping that Ortega (and Thing-Hand Victor Dorobant) will be happy to reprise their role.
She is inevitably joined by her near-love interest Xavier Thorpe, played by Percy Hynes White. Rejected but not forgotten, the poor guy might actually have a chance now that Tyler is out of the picture.
Or is he? When we last saw Wednesday’s kind friend on the play’s villain, he was arrested, but something tells us the guttural growl he let out at the end could lead to an outburst. If that’s the case, we fully expect Hunter Doohan to jump back into his Hyde skin for Season 2.
Also, the cast must join:
• Emma Myres as Enid Sinclair
• Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay
• George Farmer as Ajax Pertroplus
• Naomi J Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka
• Jamie McShane as Sheriff Donovan Galpin
• Luis Guzman as Gomaz Addams
• Catherine Zeta Jones as Morticia Addams
• Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams
• Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester
Christina Ricci’s oily Ms Thornhill could potentially return as she hasn’t quite lived up to her ambitions (more on that below).
Gwendoline Christie’s Larissa Weems may have bitten the big one, but there was something ambiguous about her death. It’s possible she could return after all resurrections are a thing in this world and her story arc seemed a bit shortened.
That is, the sandman (which Christie also stars in) has been renewed for a second season due to potential scheduling conflicts. Fingers crossed that this isn’t the case as Christie is addictively good as both Lucifer and Weems and we must have both!
Poor Doctor Kinbott’s fate was not so ambiguous. Riki Lindhome’s character is unlikely to have survived the Hyde attack with lacerations and lacerations, so likely won’t be back for season two.
Season 2 Storyline Wednesday: What Will Happen?
We mentioned loose threads and boy where they flapped in the wind. Wednesday’s discovery that her boyfriend was the monster terrorizing Nevermore is the kind of heartbreak she didn’t seem to enjoy, despite her penchant for pain. As a double dose of treachery, he was controlled by teacher favorite Ms Thornhill, who turned out to be a bitter Normie with an ax to grind with the outcasts.
We doubt Tyler will continue to be her controlled “pet,” but we’re almost certain he escaped, and even more certain that he’ll show up in Wednesday’s life again. As a friend, lover or foe, however, one has yet to be decided.
A few times the show’s name dropped the ominous presence of the Morning Songs, a cult-like group led by Bianca’s siren mother and capable of attracting new members.
Bianca was forced by her mother to join them to increase her powers of persuasion. There’s definitely room and wiggle room to make her the main villain in season two. Watch this room.
One thing that certainly needs clarification is the mysterious lyricist. Shortly after Xavier gifted her brand new phone, Wednesday received a cryptic, ominous text message with stalker photos of her.
The sender, well, it’s unknown, but it’s the kind of danger that’s sure to set Wednesday’s soul ablaze. It’s also something that will surely help get the wheels turning on a Season 2 story.
Wednesday Season 2 Trailer: When Can I See It?
Sigh. We’ll have a long wait, but if Wednesday’s persistent investigation has taught us anything so far, it’s that patience is rewarded.
